So my list...

- Christmas gifts for kid's school teachers
- Christmas ornaments
- Quilt for one of my best friends (this is underway)

and perhaps more importantly I need to actually think a little more about other things I want to make for people because at the moment I'm totally stumped!! I guess it's good I get to add to this list then and can visit the blog hop stops before me! ;)

What are you making for Christmas?


  1. Great list, Lucy. I'm looking forward to seeing what you decide to add. After a few years of handmade gifts, I'm finder it harder to think of what to sew for people :)

  2. Brilliant list! I never know what to make the teachers so always end up sending in a bottle of wine!!
    I've ended up wanting to add loads to my list, by reading everyone else lists!!!!

  3. Brilliant idea. I was just saying yesterday it's all very well a finish-a-long but I need a start-a-long for all the stuff I need to get done in the next few months! Christmas and lots of Milestone birthday's coming up!

  4. Oh Jan I have no problem starting! Great list - looking forward to your makes Lucy

  5. If only I was organised enough to join in with this- but I am not! Good luck.

  6. this is a great idea! i've been debating whether or not to attempt making a quilt for each of my kids for christmas. i have 4 in various stages for my girls and all the stuff for some simple quilts for the boys. i just don't know if it can be done! if i'm ever going to have a mama-made-quilts-christmas, this would be my opportunity. i guess at least trying wouldn't hurt, right? =)
